Advertising Age is now accepting submissions for its annual Women to Watch list honoring the most accomplished and up-and-coming women in marketing today. Who do you think should join the list of nearly 500 outstanding women (including Donna Speciale, Linda Sawyer, Carolyn Everson and Karen Quintos) recognized with this powerful honor since its inception 20 years ago?


The Women to Watch list recognizes up-and-comers making names for themselves at media companies, brands, tech companies and agencies of all stripes. We're looking for groundbreakers, forward-thinkers and rainmakers blazing trails in the agency and marketing realm with new solutions, awesome creative, data insights and business-building initiatives. Specifically, we look for meaningful or measurable accomplishments within the last 12 months. You may also include testimonials from others endorsing your candidate.

The submission deadline is 11:59 p.m. ET on May 1 and there is a $250 processing fee for nominations.
A team of editors will review all the submissions, research candidates and seek input from staff reporters on the final decisions.
The staff may also consider candidates that were not nominated through the submission process.

Winners will be notified by mid-May and a special issue of Advertising Age honoring the Women to Watch class of 2016 both in print and online will publish May 30.
